April Fools Half - Atlantic City Baby!

9:14 PM KyannaSimone 0 Comments


I have another half marathon to run that is 13 days away! I’m super excited because this is my first race in a different state. I’m only going to New Jersey but it’s still a different state.

Since the UnitedNYCHalf I’ve been trying to get some runs in as well and getting some strength training done. The last thing I want to do is become injured in a state that’s foreign to me. On top of that, I am running this race alone. I don’t have any friends with me, I don’t have family coming, and it’s just going to be me. No parties over here.

The April Fools half marathon is what I’m running. I am not looking to PR this race; I am just looking to have a good time. There’s supposed to be 1,000+ runners, which doesn’t seem like much compared to NYRR races, but maybe that’s a lot for Atlantic City? I don’t know.

Wait, did I mention this race was in Atlantic City? Yes guys! This race starts and end on the boardwalk of Atlantic City, another reason why I am very excited to go. All the food and casinos, (I don’t gamble like that,) and the different environment should be very refreshing.

But I still can’t help but think, I will be alone this race, I would be in a different state alone. Such an occasion shouldn’t be celebrated alone, but I guess such is life. I don’t know what I am going to do with myself! Some advice?

This is the second race of my three races that I am using to qualify for half fanatics. The next half marathon I have after this is the Brooklyn half. 

Any who please shake the lonely feeling off of me because I am getting really nervous right now. You guys would keep me company right?

Have any of you guys run a race out of your home state before? Have you been alone? How did you cope? I need answers!
